At 10:50 am on Thursday Mason City police received a report of an assault at Kum & Go, loacted 1224 Federal Ave North.

Before a police officer arrived the parties involved had left. The male subject returned prior to officer leaving the scene. Law enforcement subsequently arrested 29 year old John Dale Bohall of Mason City on an aggravated misdemeanor count of public intoxication.

Court records show Bohall has been convicted of public intoxication ten times since 2006. In two of the cases Bohall was also arrested for assaulting a peace officer.

A defendant convicted of aggravated public intoxication could receive up to two years in prison and be ordered to complete an alcohol treatment program.

Bohall was transported and booked into the Cerro Gordo County Jail. On Friday morning Bohall is listed on the Cerro Gordo County Sheriff’s inmate population report as being held on a $2,000 cash or surety bond.

    Apparently the two judges interviewed by the globe felt that way, however the judge who sentenced Michael Cabrera to two years in prison for his 11th offense didn’t read the globe.

    He came into the store and asked who called the police. I was in there and was watching it happen.

    I really think this is a “non-story”. We have already been told by the GG that the local judges have told them they will be assigning deferred and suspended sentences because of jail overcrowding! So why are we interested ib his 11th arrest or his 40th…it isn’t going to make any difference!
